Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is in critical condition after having a cardiac arrest and collapsing on the field during the first quarter of Monday night’s game between the Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals, the player’s team said.

Hamlin fell on his back just after getting up from a tackle on Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins.

“His heartbeat was fixed on the field, and he was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for more tests and treatment.” “He is currently sedated and listed as being in critical condition,” the Bills said in a tweet early Tuesday morning.

Within ten seconds of the player falling, the Bills team trainers were taking care of him. Footage shows that an ambulance was on the field in less than five minutes, and he was given CPR, according to an ESPN broadcast.

The game was put on hold at 5:58 of the first quarter, and it was later officially moved to a later date.

“I’ve never seen anything like it since I started playing,” Vincent said. “I immediately put on my player hat. How do you go back to playing after seeing something so traumatic happen right in front of you in real time?”

After seeing a teammate have a medical emergency in the middle of the game, the players on the field were clearly upset. Some could be seen crying, praying, kneeling, and hugging each other before they went back to the locker room.

According to his Pittsburgh Panthers player bio, he was redshirted in 2016. This means that he sat out games but stayed on the team because of an injury. The NFL site also said that he had injuries in 2017 and 2019.
